Couple robbed at gunpoint in La Romain

La Romain police are investigating a report in which a 34-year-old woman and her 31-year-old husband were beaten and robbed on Thursday night.

The incident reportedly took place at about 9 pm at the couple’s business-place along the Southern Main Road, La Romain.

The couple were said to be outside of the shop when they were approached by three men.

One of the men was said to be armed with a firearm and announced a holdup.

The assailants then hit the male victim in the head with the firearm and ordered the couple back into their business.

The robbers then proceeded to relieve the couple of $5,000, which was said to be the day’s earnings at the shop, and escaped.

Investigations are continuing.
